Showered with Oscars—11 out of a record-tying 14 nominations—Cameron’s epic account of the early demise of the most famous ship of them all is a feast for the eyes and ears. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet star as the radiant young lovers on the bustling, multi-level vessel, their class-crossed romance playing out against the historical detail of a notoriously outsized production. The result was a bigger-than-life film that tapped an age-old formula of great romance and fateful tragedy.
“James Cameron's 194-minute, $200 million film of the tragic voyage is in the tradition of the great Hollywood epics. It is flawlessly crafted, intelligently constructed, strongly acted and spellbinding.”
